I’m from there, and I’d say you may be asking the wrong questions. I’d figure out where the work is (or which airport you prefer, if applicable), and then figure out what kind of a commute you can live with

WeHo/DTLA -> LAX is 60-90 minutes and I can’t accept that, no matter how much Silver Lake aligns with my preferences. Not having reasonable access to the best parts of LA is probably the reason I’ll leave in a few years

^ i fly every week and i have never had a 60-90 minute commute

Owned. My bad. Maybe it’s because i fly early and back late.

Dtla. 1800 studio, depends where your office is though. Where’re you coming from?

Office is downtown but I’d probably be traveling from LAX? Not sure of the other airports. KPMG 1 do you like living in dtla?

The going out scene is pretty hot. It’s close to weho. But you may miss out on the west la action alot. Ubers are relatively cheap in LA though. Also, LAX will always be a disaster

Venice beach. Rent isn’t pretty

Santa Monica. It’s very doable and I travel every week for work anyway so commuting around LA isn’t a big issue

Most of my younger single LA colleagues live on the West Side (Santa Monica, Venice), young families tend to be around Silver Lake, and older ones tend to be out near Burbank. I live in OC now and wouldn't trade it, but I'm mostly settled down and not partying much.

If you’re gonna be here a while, grab that Santa Monica rent control. $2800 2BR/2BA

Join LA Bowl, good group of us on there if you have more questions.

As someone said, what you want in a neighborhood should drive your choice (they’re very different). Keep in mind if you travel outside of west coast, LAX is required so don’t go too far away. BUR is perfect for west coast travel though

I’m late twenties, married in Mid-Wilshire pay $4k for 2bed apt with amenities. 20-30 min to downtown and 30 min to LAX. 10 min to Weho which is where our social scene is. Looking to buy in Culver City or Mar Vista in next 2 years.

Most people in my office in their 20s either live downtown or Westside (mostly Santa Monica, Marina Del Rey).

Thanks everyone! I’ll join the LA bowl. I’m a bit surprised at so many people on the west side, I assumed most would be weho, silver lake, downtown areas. Maybe I will expand my horizons. Was hoping for a 1 bed (share with SO, not studio) around $2400

OP- very achievable to get nice 1bed place for that amount. Seems right on par

KPMG how long does it take you? Flying early/late is what I imagine I’ll be doing as well. I’m hoping it’s not as bad as peak. Otherwise I’ll have to seriously reconsider my choice of neighborhoods lol

For me i fly out around 10 am sundays and get back about 9 pm fridays. But usually 30-45 mins. I can deal.
